Countdown 1 year {7 months}

Happy 7 months our precious boy.

Its so crazy to think you've only been a part of our lives for a little over half a year.
Seems like we've known you forever.
This month has been no different from the others.
You've grown, learned new things, & have stolen our hearts even more.
And, let me tell you...
you've turned this mama to mush.
You are very much a mama's boy.
I am the only person you reach for.
Ever. Smart man...
When you're upset, I'm usually the solution to that problem.
Let's just enjoy that fact for a moment...ahh.
Okay. Glad that's documented. I do suppose it won't be this way forever...

You are so curious.
Now that you're bigger, trying out some of the things your big sis can do, brings you tons of excitement.
There's not any fear in your tiny body.
We'll see if that lasts...cause it makes me a tad nervous.

This month you started saying "dada."
Which in turn wrapped that dad around your finger.
When he comes home from work now, there's a good chance, after a big Parker hug, that he's in your face getting grins & giggles, waiting to hear his name squealed.

You are still sweet, cuddly, snuggly, & C-U-T-E.
That thumb has become great comfort.
Between your thumb, your blanket, & your mom, you stay one happy dude.

Oh boy.
You've been filling much of your awake time trying to figure out how to crawl.
You've sat yourself up from this position 3 times now.
It even made you clap your hands once.
You go from sitting, to hands & knees in a flash, where you rock wildly until you flop on your belly.
Great fun. We're just bracing ourselves for the day you actually take off.
Remember....you're very curious. Eek.

You were dedicated right after your 6 month birthday.
Your family was all there to pray for you & promise to raise you to know the Lord.
We're excited to see who you will grow up to be in Him.
But perfectly content to enjoy each moment along the way.
And, your shoes. Sigh.
One was lost the morning of your dedication. So you went barefoot.
One day it'll be funny. Maybe...

That girl still loves you.
You get kissed, hugged, tickled, & talked to all day long by that girl.
Unless she's busy swiping a toy from you.
One day I won't be the only one who objects to that...she'll figure that out soon enough though.

A rockin' man.

You are very handsy.
You love to touch everything you can get your hands on.
Then it goes straight into your mouth.
You even reach up high for things.
I'm afraid that will encourage pulling up sooner than later, but it's really cute to watch.
We can't imagine our family without you in it, our adventurous boy.
You make everyday brighter, squishier, droolier, & oh so happy.
We love you so much.

Yes, Mr. Tucker! We allowed your mom, dad and sister to go boat riding and you stayed with Aunt Sha. That went over well until you realized your mother was nowhere to be found and you let out a wail that rocked our house - and my heart!!! You are a momma's boy! But she came back and you survived and were oh so happy again! We sure do love you!
